Use automatic transmission 2-4 mode when possible. • Get in Position – Spot loading targets in the right position. 9 . • Idle Down – Set the parking brake to engage Engine Idle Management System.Operating Costs Move More. Avoid lift lever detent and use transmission neutralizer. Keep engine rpm low and unload in controlled manner. Several features contribute to this excellent fuel efficiency: • Load-Sensing Hydraulics – Adjusts to operating conditions providing only the hydraulic flow required by the implements for improved fuel efficiency and greater rimpull. • ACERT™ Technology – Manages air. • Free Wheel Stator Torque Converter – Improves power train efficiencies in load and carry operations. Adjust variable shift control for the application. • Get Loaded – Load in first gear and keep engine below 1. saving on fuel consumption. • Variable Shift Control – Allows operator to select optimum shift patterns based upon the application. Radial tires are preferred. Operator technique and machine configuration can dramatically impact fuel consumption. fuel and injection to deliver only the amount of fuel needed. Here are some potential fuel saving tips: • Get Trained – Operator technique can impact fuel consumption by as much as 30 percent.600 rpm. not full throttle FNR. Avoid traveling more than twice the machine length. • Engine Idle Management System – Reduces the engine speed when idling. Fuel Efficiency Data from thousands of customer machines show Cat Wheel Loaders are among the most fuel efficient machines in the industry. therefore training is vital. Use lowest rpm required for the job. Raise and tilt smoothly and don’t “pump” the bucket. • Get the Right Machine – Equip the machine with proper tires and work tools. Heavier tires require more fuel. • Get Moving – Use brakes when changing directions. • Get Unloaded – Don’t raise the work tool any higher than necessary. Lower Costs.
